Theatricum Botanicum Hosts Memorial for Heidi Helen Davis

Reminder that The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum will host a memorial celebration for director, teacher and actress Heidi Helen Davis tomorrow, Sunday, April 29 at 12 pm. Everyone who would like to join together for an afternoon of sharing and to celebrate her life is invited. Davis died last December at age 60 following a yearlong struggle with breast cancer. In her final days, Heidi said, “Breaking bread is one of the most intimate things people can do together. Please ask everyone to bring a dish that is meaningful to them. Something that is their specialty, or maybe handed down in their family.” 

If you would like to attend please bring a dish or drinks to share that does not require heating or refrigeration, and send an RSVP to so that the meal can be coordinated. Paper goods will be supplied.

In lieu of flowers, Heidi requested that donations be sent to Theatricum Botanicum. It was her wish that the funds be dedicated to mentoring the next generation of theater artists. As a person of mixed race, she strongly endorsed Theatricum’s mission to expose all races to the great works. Donations may be sent to: The Heidi Helen Davis Intern Fund at The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum, P.O. Box 1222, Topanga, CA 90290. The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum is located at 1419 North Topanga Canyon Blvd. in Topanga, midway between Malibu and the San Fernando Valley. The theater is located outdoors, so bring a sweater if the weather is cool. For more information, call 310-455-2322.
